    I have had several folks ask about this and decided to throw together a quick "How-to" post.


    Step 1: Click on "UserCP" in the top Navbar


    Step 2: Click on "Edit Signature" in the left Navbar


    Step 3: Highlight the following link text with your mouse cursor - Right-click and select "Copy" or hit Ctrl + C to grab the text.

    Step 4:
    Place your cursor in the spot where you want the image to be and select the "Insert Image" icon.


    Example:

    [​IMG]


    Step 5: When you click on the "Insert Image" icon.. there will be a little dialogue box that opens up.

    It will say "http://"

    Overwrite the "http://" with the text link in blue by using Ctrl + V or Right-click and then select "Paste"

    Hit OK.


    Step 6: Press the Preview button at the bottom to make sure it works then when you are satisfied that all is well, press the "Save Signature" button.

    This will really help our new Knights of the Order to be able to get the image in their 'sig-lines'...[​IMG]

    Once I knew where to find the image I had no problem getting in put in its place...

    Thanks again Jeff for your help this morning!!...[​IMG]

    Terry,

    When you click on the "Insert Image" icon.. there will be a little dialogue box that opens up.

    It will probably say "http://"

    Overwrite the "http://" with the text link in blue in the instructions and hit ok.

    Dang Jeff, 30 seconds ago, I was thrilled. The OTBS came on. Now I see that my angel is gone. If I have to make a choice, it will be her. Any other ideas? Sorry to be such a bother. [​IMG] Terry

    Terry,

    You might want to put your angel back on for now... there is a setting somewhere on here that controls some of that but not able to find it right now..

    Past my bedtime I suppose[​IMG]

    Terry...

    I made you a graphic that contains a modded logo along with your angel!...

    It's all together in one pic...will work around the 1 pic limit for a sig-line...

    Hope it'll help!...

    I had to do a similar pic for mine too!...

    And Jeff...If there's anything I need to fix on the pic for Terry, or on mine, just let me know and I'll take care of it!...


    Until later...
